Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Saddle Question

I replaced the stock saddle on the Hour with an old Bianchi saddle I found at a shop and it kind of angles itself upward and I don't like it very much. Is there anything I can do to have the seat parallel to the floor?
